Concept Info

NAME

Complexity

DESCRIPTION

Complexity is the property of a system whose behaviour as a whole emerges as distinct from the simple sum of its individual behaviours. The understanding of complex systems is therefore beyond the linear algebra of classic reductionism and requires either statistical methods or computer simulations
